Phoenix

An audio drama written by Mike Bartlett and read by Bertie Carvel

Overview

Phoenix, an audio drama written by Mike Bartlett and read by Bertie Carvel, Olivier Award winners, who previously collaborated on the BBC’s Doctor Foster. Phoenix is a rapid response to the present moment.

The production is part of Signal Fires, a project conceived by ETT and Headlong to bring together over forty of the UK’s leading touring companies to tour an idea at a time when traditional touring isn’t possible. Phoenix is released on Thursday 5 November at 6pm, here on our website and social media channels ahead of a release on iTunes and Spotify.

As England enters its second lockdown, here’s a story that lays bare the destructive nature of male ego and imagines how we came to be here. Phoenix is a story about fire and destruction; about self-deceit and the corrosion of trust; about interrogating the tension between our collective responsibility and individual desires.

Our plans to gather live audiences around fires for evenings of storytelling have had to be postponed due to national Coronavirus restrictions so here’s a story for our times to enjoy at home.

Be advised: Strong Language

The audio drama has sound design by Ben and Max Ringham.
